Stitch Fix #20 + One Last Chance at a Waived Styling Fee!

Monday, January 29, 2018

This post contains affiliate links but, as always, all opinions are my own. If you use my affiliate link, I may receive a small commission.

I got this fix back in December, right before things got crazy with the holidays. I took some pictures but then never shared it. I was trying to be good and put myself on a budget of only keeping one item (spoiler alert), BUT the item I kept is totally unlike me but (again, spoiler alert) I LOVE IT. Take a peek at what I got and tell me if you think I made the right decisions!

Psssst! Remember that the waived styling fee promo was extended through the month of January! You still have a few more days to take advantage! If you are a new customer, sign up for Stitch Fix, and schedule your very first fix, you can get your styling fee waved. That's right. No $20 styling fee and worrying if you don't like anything then your $20 will be lost. So, if you've been wanting to try Stitch Fix (or been wanting to sign your husband up - that's right, there is Stitch Fix Men!) but you've been on the fence about it, try it, risk free! Click here to get your styling fee waved and schedule your fix!

Try your first fix risk free!If you don't know what Stitch Fix is, let me tell you a little about it. Stitch Fix is basically a personal shopping service. First you fill out your online profile by answering some questions about likes/dislikes, style, sizing, price range, etc. Then you can write a note about what you're interested in as well as link a Pinterest style board to help your stylist know what you're looking for and what your style is. Your personal stylist will then gather some items that she thinks you'd like and sends them to you. You try them on in the comfort of your own home and decide what you do and don't want to keep and then you have three days to send back whatever you don't want. Easy peasy! The styling fee is normally $20 per fix, but is being waved for November if you are a new client. Normally if you send back all the items, you lose the $20. If you keep one (or more) items, they deduct the $20 styling fee from your total and you pay the difference. If you keep all five items, they deduct the $20 from the total and you get a 25% discount on all the items. Pretty great! If you're a new customer and you're interested in signing up, if you want to use my referral code then I'll get small credit to my account and will be forever grateful. As for future fixes, you can schedule them for as often or not as you want. You can auto schedule one to come once a month or you can do like I do and just schedule one when you want one. I usually get between 8-10 per year.

On to my fix!

Ink Love & Peace | Calyn Cowl Neck Knit Pullover

I actually specifically asked for this shirt. I got a plum colored one in a fix a year or so ago and agonized whether or not to keep it. I LOVED it, but couldn't justify the price so I sadly sent it back. When I saw that it was back in season again, I pinned it and asked for it. Unfortunately for me, I don't know if it's the color or all the Christmas cookies I was eating, but I just didn't love it on me this go around. Maybe if it were the plum color I would have kept it, but it just didn't feel right.

Verdict: Returned.

TOMS | Classic Alpargata Solid Canvas Slip-On Flats

I love that she sent me shoes and these are definitely some that I loved. I used to have TOMS like these in black that I wore ALL THE TIME until I got a hole in the toe (and even after that lol), but recently I haven't really been in to that style much. Unfortunately they also didn't feel as comfortable as I remember them. Since I didn't think I'd get much wear out of them (though cute), I decided I better send them back.

Verdict : Returned.

41 Hawthorn | Lilliani Pullover Sweater

I really liked the color and design of this shirt with the multi colored stripes. It was soft and comfortable on. I liked that it wasn't see through (aka couldn't see my bra), but it was a tad too long for my frame. If I was tall and super skinny, it probably would have worked, but I'm not, and it just seemed a bit too long when it was on correctly or if I bunched it to make it shorter, it just looked frumpy.

Verdict : Returned.

Amour Vert | Kaitlyn Striped Drawstring Pullover

I wanted to love this one - I mean a cute, black and white striped sweater is right up my alley. It fit and looked cute on and had the cutest detailing on the sleeve cuffs and hem... but it was so itchy! I don't know what the material was, but man, it was not the soft, cozy sweater I was envisioning from the style card.

Verdict : Returned.

Leo & Nicole | Zaryn Cotton Blend Poncho Pullover

This was the biggest surprise for me in my fix. A poncho. I've always thought they looked cute on other people but was worried they would look like a tent on me. The style and the design and color were super cute, so I figured, hey, I'll give it a shot! I put it on and... FELL IN LOVE. I found it to actually be very flattering and not boxy or tent-y at all. And the cowl neck... pushed me over the top! This was the one I thought I would for sure be sending back, but to my surprise, it was the one I loved the most and kept!

Verdict : KEPT!


So, to sum it up, another great fix from Raquel! I really love that she reads my blog posts and that she checks my Pinterest page. She tries to give me what I pin and ask for, but also puts her take on what she thinks I'll like. I can't wait to schedule another fix and get some spring/summer items!
